|Cerebral sinovenous thrombosis in paediatric age|
Methods and materials
Retrospective study performed in a tertiary-level healthcare hospital (Hospital Vall d'Hebron, Barcelona, Spain) from 2010 to 2018, which includes 35 patients diagnosed with CSVT confirmed by CT, MRI with or without magnetic resonance venography (MRV) or transfontanel power Doppler ultrasonography.
Demographic and clinical characteristics of the patients were recorded, including age at the time of presentation, sex, neurologic manifestations and risk factors associated with CSVT, along with treatment and neurologic outcome.
CSVT was classified as superficial or deep and data regarding cortical vein involvement and presence of parenchymal infarctions, hemorrhage or hydrocephalus was recorded.
Univariate analyses were performed with Fisher’s exact test for categorical data and with Kruskal-Wallis-test for continuous data in order to identify predictors of an adverse outcome (neurological deficits or death). SPSS software version 21 (SPSS, Inc., Chicago, IL). A two-tailed p-value <0.05 was considered statistically significant.
